Spoonbill and friends

Roseate Spoonbill
In a previous post I mentioned that I was hoping to get some pics from my Daughter of birds she had photographed on our Florida trip, unfortunately she only took a few, but at long last she has mailed them to me so that I may use them. So with her kind permission here they are, taken on her bog-standered digi camera, and I have to say they ain't half bad. I also have to say at this point that all but one of the pics were taken on the bike ride she went on at Shark Valley.

American Bittern, I'm a bit envious at this point as I have yet to see one!!!

And still at Shark Valley, my Daughter found this snake about to cross the path 
                            Now can anyone in Florida, or anywhere ID this snake for us, ID on the net has proved to be a bit fussy.

And lastly I'm sure she took this one at Wakodahachee wetlands, I think she did OK.
Thank you Melissa for the pics.


  1. Well done! Your daughter captured a very nice variety of my Florida favorites!!

  2. Thank you Tammy, I'll pass the word, tried to get her interested when she was young but no good, now at 23 she is getting interested in wild life generally, which is great.
    Take care, Gordon.

  3. google images of a brooks king snake .See what you think. Good shot. Glad you enjoyed Fl

    1. I think you could be right Girls, thanks for your help, and I enjoyed your adventure.
